Additional Regatta Info: All athletes are expected to be available for all regattas as it affects boat assignments for the whole team.  They need to stay for the entire regatta to help their teammates with docking, rigging, loading and cheering.   It is not acceptable to just show up for your own races or leave before ALL boats are trailered.

Parents (and Modified Rowers!) are encouraged to attend, cheer, and volunteer, and are welcome to eat at the BRC tent. Please check the volunteer sign up links, there are many ways to help even if you cannot be there.
